DJ Shadow's Wide Influence

Is there any way you could search your archives for me and tell me how many times you've compared an artist to DJ Shadow? I looked today just for grins, and it wasn't a direct comparison, but it was stated "Rjd2 gets compared to DJ Shadow a bunch" [Section Three, May 14]. I saw one that compared Squarepusher to Shadow. Now that was good. If these things are going to be in Critic's Choices, shouldn't the critic be familiar with the artist and the genre?
